The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ma & Paws Pet Supplies sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
